In case you have a domain name and a web hosting account for it, you will be able to create mailboxes for personal or commercial purposes and to set them up with email apps such as Outlook, Apple Mail or Thunderbird. In the meantime, you will be able to pick one of the two popular email protocols – IMAP or POP3. The first one will allow you to view all messages, but they will stay on the mail server, while with the second protocol, all email messages will be downloaded to the device where the mailbox is set up, unless you explicitly select a copy to be left on the server. In this way, you can choose if you want all your electronic correspondence to be stored on one single device, or if you’d rather be able to access the emails from various places. The latter alternative is very convenient for corporations where different people working on different machines need to have access to a particular email account.

POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Web Hosting

You will be able to use any email client and any mobile or desktop device to access your emails if you select any of our Linux web hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (IMAP and POP3), so you can choose the one that corresponds to your interests – you can download all emails to your personal computer or you can store the messages on the mail server if you have a firm and a number of people need to access them, for instance. You can even download an auto-configuration file for a specific mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Outlook, Thunderbird and Apple Mail. You’ll just have to run the file on your computer and that mailbox will be automatically set up. If you would rather use your phone, we have included comprehensive tutorials on how to create a mailbox on an Android- or an iOS-powered mobile device.
